On September 22, 2012, the Peruvian Ministry of Justice and Human Rights issued a draft regulation to implement Peru’s new Personal Data Protection Law. The comment period expires on October 5, 2012; however, the U.S. Department of Commerce’s International Trade Administration has requested an extension to allow additional time for comments. The Centre for Information Policy Leadership at Hunton & Williams LLP is considering high-level comments on the draft regulation. It is thought that Peru may intend to issue the final regulation prior to the 34th International Conference of Data Protection and Privacy Commissioners, which will take place on October 23, 2012, in Uruguay.
